Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that he has got mixed feelings about midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala's high card count. The Congolese player was red carded in Saturday's 2-1 defeat against Bristol Rovers after he picked up two yellow cards inside five minutes.
Last season he clocked up 14 yellow card and one red card, and was dropped from his side on the final game of last season to avoid him picking up his 15th and a further ban. Skiverton said that he had no issue with Kalala's aggressive tackling, but he felt that it was the more trivial infringements that he needed to cut out of his game:
"It's difficult with JP (Kalala) because I don't want to restrain the boy. He runs about and gets his foot in for us and I like that. I'm not going to change him as a player and make him stand off. It's just the silly bookings and the second one was a silly one. We had a chat to him in the dressing room and he knows how I feel about it."
